Balfour Beatty in joint venture for Thames Tideway Tunnel

27 February 2015


Balfour Beatty in a joint venture with BAM Nuttall Ltd and Morgan Sindall Plc has been chosen as the preferred main works tenderers for a section of the new Thames Tideway Tunnel.

The tunnel will be the biggest infrastructure project ever under taken by the UK water industry and will ensure London’s sewerage system is ‘fit for purpose’ by preventing millions of tonnes of sewage pollution from being discharged into the tidal River Thames every year.

Final contracts are expected to be awarded this summer.
